Jerusalem (TPS) – The Lobby for Shaping the Gun-Carrying Policy in Israel was launched at the Knesset on Monday, February 15 with Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan in attendance. The new lobby calls for the easing of gun-control regulations in Israel in order to improve the citizens’ security.
“The personal security of Israeli citizens is under attack,” said lobby chairman MK Amir Ohana of the Likud party. “This attack didn’t start five months ago; it started when the Jewish people returned to its land. We cannot accept a reality in which citizens defend themselves in the streets from terrorists using umbrellas and shopping carts.”
